Double Love Pedi Inspired Hand Stamped Card

During the season of love... I love to share the love!  With amazing friends, family, hubby and kids... I am blessed  with many an opportunity! Decorating my home is just the start.. I'm quick to get my pinks, reds and berry colored clothes out during this season and even sport some pretty Valentine inspired toes.  Creating a fashionable embossed, sanded and die-cut card that is inspired by said toes is just a fun way to show that I care!
This classic, minimal card is created with:
Cherry Cobbler card stock (#119685)
Cherry Cobbler Core'dination card stock (#129955 Regals Collection)
Early Espresso card stock (#119686)
Gold Foil Sheets (#132622)
Stampin' Sanding System (#129367)
Adoring Accents Embossing Folders (125601)
Hearts Collection Framelits (#125599)
Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (#113439)
Big Shot Magnetic Platform (#130658)
These open, linked double hearts are easy and elegant to create!  I love how they shine.. and brighten this card.
Placing the hearts Collection Framelits over the Gold Foil Sheet on the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine and Magnetic Platform will keep the hearts right where you want them so that you can actually cut the outside at the same time!!  (Psssst - I LOVE the Magnetic Platform.. I'm just saying... not as much as I love my kids, but it's up in my top 100 - lol.)
Using even the scrap here, the inner hearts are an ideal inside accent to this card... so put them on inside for a continued accent!
Create a subtle accent with the Adoring Accents Heart Strip.  After Embossing this with the Big Shot and the Cherry Cobbler Core'dination card stock.  This card stock has a lighter inner core that is meant to show through once sanded.
Core'dination card stock also has a rich linen look where not sanded... it's so rich looking. 
Sand the top of the raised/embossed strip of hearts with the Stampin' Sanding System and this lighter core will peek through and leave a soft texture, too!
This soft texture, raised and lighter in color, is a sweet accent to this clean card.
Layered over the Early Espresso card stock, it breaks up the Cherry Cobbler card stock base, Cherry Cobbler Core'dination card stock and lends me to dream of chocolate covered cherries... that and strawberries (a favorite treat of mine).... sigh...   Early Espresso is paired with Cherry Cobbler with the help of my Color Coach (#130118).
The extra hearts are the ideal accent to the inside of this sweet card.  Sometimes less is more... and that is definitely this card!
Inspiration??  Heck Yeah!  My love of fashion and Pedi's... sigh... so even with a cool and damp day like this I can sport a peep toe with flair while showing off my Valentine Pedi!!
The two open gold hearts on the deep red toe is the inspiration for this clean and simple card!

What Others are SAYING about Getting Crafty with Jamie

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
